Jenny Is Scared
A gentle, comforting, coping story for children who are aware of the threats of violence and terrorism in the world. A range of fears, feelings and questions are explored. Safety, hope and comfort are offered in terms that are honest and reasonable - including the acknowledgement that we cannot control everything. The child reader is encouraged to talk to parents, friends, and other caregivers, and to be part of the long-term solution of tolerance and love for humanity. Suitable for children aged 4-8.
This volume is designed to help children understand emotions, and shows that it is possible to experience two contrasting feelings at the same time, such as feeling both proud and scared on the first day of school. Questions are raised throughout the book to help them cope with the tugs and pulls of emotions that simultaneous and dissimilar feelings can produce.

Why Are You So Sad
